Select your seat

A little bit extra goes a long way

What's New
Seat Selection is now complimentary for international Economy Saver and Flex fares. The charge for Seat Selection for International Economy Sale Fares has changed from $25 to $15 on Trans-Tasman flights. For all other International flights it has changed from $25 to $30. More customers will have the option to select their preferred seat free of charge. Where customers select seats free of charge during check-in (available from 24 hours before departure), or do not select their seat at all, our airport staff will endeavour to accommodate parties travelling together if seats are available.


Like the window seat? Prefer the aisle? Select your preferred seat on Qantas operated flights+ after making a booking. Seat Selection is complimentary for customers who are:

  • Travelling on any Qantas operated domestic service;
  • Travelling internationally in Economy on a Saver or Flex fare;
  • Travelling internationally in First, Business or Premium Economy cabins;
  • Platinum One, Platinum, Gold or Silver Frequent Flyers or equivalent oneworld and Emirates Skywards Frequent Flyers;
  • On the same booking and travelling with any of the above mentioned travellers;
  • Checking in within 24 hours of departure.

Seat Selection is available for a charge for customers travelling in International Economy on Sale fares.
